Your roof is above you every day, but you might not give it much thought until something goes wrong. Roofs are constantly exposed to all types of weather conditions that over time can result in serious problems for your home. Whether you need a full roof replacement, a partial roof replacement or need a new roof installed, we have the experience needed to get the job done safely and correctly.
Roof Replacement Services
There are very few structural issues that can lead to more devastating consequences than a failed roof. In some cases, it may make more sense to replace the roof than repair it. Constant roof repairs can quickly add up to cost more than a full replacement. We offer roof inspections and a variety of roof replacement options.
Roof replacements can take anywhere from a day to several days; the precise amount of time will depend on factors including the size of the room, the complexity of the work and the weather.
Full Roof Replacements
We know having work done on your home can be inconvenient, so we strive to carry out all of our roof replacements in a way that causes minimal disruption to the members of your home.
A full roof replacement typically involves:
- Removal of Existing Shingles: The initial step involves safely removing and disposing of the existing shingles.
- Assessment of Roof Condition: After the shingles are removed, the roof’s condition is evaluated. If the roof is in good shape, only minor repairs are made as needed.
- Roof Repair or Replacement: If the roof structure is damaged or deteriorated, the wood sheathing beneath the shingles may need to be replaced.
- Installation of Asphalt Roofing Paper: Post repair, a layer of asphalt roofing paper is installed over the roof sheathing. This prevents water from seeping into the house.
- Installation of New Roofing Material: Finally, your roofing material is installed using top-quality tools and materials, ensuring the highest level of protection for your home.

Types Of Roofs We Install
We have decades of experience installing new roofs with a full spectrum of roofing styles, including metal roofs, shake roofs, flat roofs and asphalt shingles.
Shake Style Roofing
One roofing option that is growing in popularity is shake-style roofing. When choosing non-wooden alternatives, the upkeep is minimal and shake-style roofs can have a longer life expectancy. Synthetic shakes are also an option for budget-conscious homeowners.
Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular materials for roofing in residential homes thanks to their durability against the elements and affordability. Modern asphalt shingles boast far better quality than their predecessors and are now made with more fiberglass and less asphalt for greater longevity.
Flat roofs are level in contrast to conventional sloped roofs, with a low slope between 1/4 to 1/2 inch per foot. This small degree of sloping allows for water drainage. Types of flat roofs consist of Built-Up Roof (BUR), Modified Bitumen Roof, and Rubber Membrane Roof. There are pros and cons to each type; however, flat roofs are also an option for budget-conscious homeowners.
A metal roof is an incredibly robust option, known for its longevity and resilience. It can outlast many other roofing materials, often surviving for decades with minimal maintenance. Additionally, it boasts superior wind resistance, standing firm against heavy windstorms that can damage other roof types.
